IDIR member Simon Dobson is writing a book on complex networks.
The textbook, imaginatively titled Complex networks, complex processes, is being developed “in the open” and can be read as it’s being written — so you can, if you like, see the process by which it develops. The topic is the meeting of the mathematics needed to analyse complex networks and their associated processes, and the high-performance computing needed to perform simulations. These both offer steep learning curves for anyone wanting to work in the area, and the goal of the book is to make it easier to understand how they work together as well as providing recipes and sample code of how to use Python to simulate and analyse real applications.
